ORLA

The Olympia Regional Learning Academy is comprised of four separate programs that provide unique learning opportunities for students:

  • Homeschool Connect is for students in grades K-12 and offers support to families who serve as their children’s primary educator through home-based instruction. Parents may enroll their children in a wide variety of on-site classes in the core subject areas of science, language arts, social studies and math as well as offerings in world languages, visual and performing arts, music, technology, physical education/health, poetry and many others. Parents may also choose from a wide assortment of curriculum for use in their coursework at home. Families meet regularly with certificated staff to discuss their children’s individual learning plans. To view our current course offerings, visit http://orla.osd.wednet.edu.
  • iConnect Academy offers students in grades 6-12 a quality education with the flexibility to choose the time of day and place where they work on their classes in an online format. Students may be enrolled full-time or they may be enrolled part-time and dually enrolled with another OSD high school.
  • ORLA Montessori provides multi-age classes observing and supporting the natural development of children for K-6th grades. ORLA Montessori follows the educational model established by Maria Montessori, where the teacher serves as an observer and guide. Learning is child-directed and emphasizes the freedom to learn, combined with child responsibility.
  • ORLA MAST (Math, Art, Science and Technology) is a full-time middle school program comprised of integrated classes inspired from adolescent Montessori and inquiry-based experiential education. MAST is for 7th and 8th grade students who are seeking a rigorous student-centered learning community that is focused on problem and project based learning. This program is only open to current Montessori and hConnect students.

 

ORLA is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (through this year) and Association of Education Service Districts in the 2018-2023 school years.
